Also interviewed is composer Mauricio Kagel in Cologne, Germany as he prepares for the premiere of his work, Zwei-Mann Orchester, a work scored for homemade instruments, crudely operated by remote control strings and wires. Charles also interviews Walther König, owner a bookstore specializing in art. The program concludes with a visit to the 7th Annual Cologne Art Fair, where the world’s greatest avant-garde galleries gather to display their wares.
